Assiniboine Community College’s Alumni Association is now accepting nominations for this year’s Parkland Region Alumni Awards, which will be presented April 11, 2019, at the annual Alumni Awards Celebration Dinner at the Lions Den, Dauphin Recreation Centre.

Nominees can be graduates of any Assiniboine campus, but must be residents of the Parkland region.

“The Parkland Region Alumni Celebration is an excellent opportunity to recognize the dedication of outstanding Assiniboine alumni in our community,” said Erin Sigvaldason, chair of the Parkland Region Alumni Committee and a 2001 graduate of the Business Administration program at the college’s Parkland campus in Dauphin. 

“The dinner provides an evening to bring together college alumni, staff, family and friends to honour and celebrate the achievements of the award recipients and to hear their stories.”

There are four awards that will be presented at this year’s event.

»      Distinguished Alumni — presented to an alumnus of the college from the Parkland region who has distinguished themselves in both their chosen profession and their community.

»      Community Service — recognizes an alumnus from the Parkland region who has positively impacted the quality of people’s lives through the service of others.

»      One to Watch — honours a graduate from the Parkland region who is 30 years of age or younger at the time of nomination and has made exceptional achievements and significant contributions to his or her profession and/or community.

»      Excellence in Teaching — honours a faculty member from the Parkland campus for extraordinary contributions to teaching and the student experience.

The deadline for nominations is March 1, 2019. For more information and for nomination forms, visit assiniboine.net/alumni/alumni-awards-parkland or email alumni@assiniboine.net.

Last year, the college recognized four individuals with Alumni Awards including David Mansell, who took home the Distinguished Alumni Award for work both in his chosen career as well as in the Dauphin community. “Mr. Mansell demonstrates much of what our annual awards embody. He is dedicated to bettering his community, and is a shining example of what it means to be a leader,” said Shaun Cameron, Alumni Relations Co-ordinator at Assiniboine. 

Other recipients from last year included Business Administration instructor Laura Chartrand, 2012 Agribusiness graduate Kevin Giesbrecht, and 2006 Human Resources Management graduate Nicole Yunker.
